Working the Negatives

striations

separate relations

the compaction

of the sedimentary

into inclines steep

variable in intensity

as i plant my feet

and sweep the excess grains

into layered history

this soil and our hearts

hard, hard, unyielding

the business of shielding

.

i am the wind

that sculpts the canyon

chiseling

to let the moisture in

the hardship

that you wish on me

i transform

into life

in community

.
